Gaming Revenue Taxes Bring $323.4 Million to Iowa


A recent annual report by the Iowa Gaming Association gives an overview of how taxes on gaming revenue is allocated by the Iowa legislature. For the fiscal year 2017, our member casinos made an enormous impact through their taxes with projects that are statewide and localized, visionary, and touch every citizen in positive ways. Numerous initiatives are funded across several departments, and the revenue generated by commercial gaming continues to leave a positive and lasting impression on our state's economic viability.

These appropriations are in addition to the $89 million in grants and charitable contributions that Iowa's commercial casinos provided in 2016. Combine those tax and charity dollars with the wages and benefits, plus purchases of Iowa-based products and services, and it collectively totals over $1 Billion in annual economic impact!
